Given the security concerns of the country, Nasscom and DSCI appointed an advisory group to work out policies needed for e-security. The group studied various cybersecurity aspects of major countries such as United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia and many others. This research on various countries helped to establish a repository of best practices and recommendations for India.
The group has released a report titled, ‘Securing our cyber frontiers’. The report suggests setting up of a national structure for cybersecurity encompassing all government agencies.
It recommends that an inventory of all national IT assets be built as such a repository will give the information regarding what needs to be defended.
